Volunteers search for Heather Elvis, set up tent for anonymous tips

Volunteers have set up a tent in Socastee near the swing bridge on Dick Pond Road by River City Café to help find Heather Elvis.

The tent was set up on Friday at 5 p.m. and will remain open 24 hours a day until Sunday at 11 p.m.

The volunteers will be taking any tips, even from those who wish to submit them anonymously all in an effort to help locate the missing 20-year-old.

"What might be insignificant to you, might be the piece of the puzzle we're missing," said Bill Barrett, a concerned parent and volunteer.

Barrett says overnight on Friday they received three tips.

On Friday night and Saturday morning, temperatures dipped below freezing but Barrett explained locating Elvis was well worth enduring the elements.

"The little bit of suffering we have to do to try to put and end to this and help the Elvis family get through this; the suffering that they're enduring is nothing compared to what they're going through," Barrett explained.

Volunteers will also be handing out flyers.
